Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring "the Martian" home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return.Written by

The average surface temperature on Mars is a frigid -63C (-81°F) compared with Earth's average of 14C (57°F). The length of a Martian day is 24 hours 37 minutes. The length of a Martian year is significantly longer than Earth's at 687 days. The gravity on Mars' surface is 62% lower than it is on Earth. At just 0.38 of the Earth standard (3.7 vs 9.8 m/s^2), a person who has a mass of 100 kg (220 lbs.) on Earth would have the same 100-kg mass on Mars but the weight on earth of 980 N would only be 373 N on Mars.

When he needs to cut a hole in the roof of his rover vehicle, Watney says that the geniuses on earth suggest drilling holes in the roof and then hitting it with a rock. There is then a shot of an earthbound genius jumping on the roof repeatedly and finally falling through it to create the hole, followed immediately by Watney jumping on the roof on Mars and falling through the hole. However, the gravity on earth is nearly three times that of Mars, and the weight of the earthbound scientist would create the hole while Watney jumping on it would not exert enough pressure to beat the structural integrity of the roof.

All right team, stay in sight of each other. Let's make NASA proud today.
How's it looking over there, Watney?
Well, you will be happy to hear that in Grid Section 14-28, the particles were predominately coarse but in 29, they're much finer and they should be ideal for chem analysis.
Oh, wow. Did everybody hear that? Mark just discovered dirt.
Should we alert the media?

Disco music, which had been a running gag throughout the film, is played during the ending credits. Appropriately, the first song played is "I Will Survive," which features the lyric "And so you're back, from outer space." See more »
